Hello all!

Like many of you, I've been a Mac user for many years and whenever I use Windows I always want the keyboard shortcuts to be the same - especially if I'm using an Apple Keyboard designed for macOS. If you're dual booting your Hackintosh with Windows I think you'll find this especially useful. Download and install AutoHotKey and then put my script file in your startup folder and the following changes to your keyboard will occur:

Key Swaps:
  • 'Command' key triggers Windows Control key
  • 'Control' key triggers Windows key
Finder Shortcuts:
  • Delete - 'Command + Delete' triggers Windows Delete key (instead of backspace) - for deleting selected icon
  • Open - 'Command + O' triggers Enter key - for opening selected icon
  • Get Info - 'Command + I' brings up properties window for selected icon
  • Enclosing Folder - 'Command + Up' sends you up one folder in hierarchy
Other Shortcuts:
  • Quit - 'Command + Q' quits out of most apps
  • Force Quit - 'Command + Option + Esc' brings up Windows Task Manager
  • Spotlight - 'Command + Space' brings up Windows search
  • Log Out - 'Command + Shift + Q' logs out of current user
